I contacted the seller who offered to send them to the manufacturer for a warranty exchange. I declined because if the can come apart from just use, how much protection could they provide.
I recommend that you pass these pants by, spend a few more dollars and get protection that might actually provide protection.
I couldn't figure how to add multiple pics, but the one I added shows all of the seam failures.
Aside from the knee armor, as I mentioned they are well made. They also keep my legs warm. I just went out for my first post winter ride and it was in the 50's. I felt no cold air whatsoever on my legs. In the summer I'll have to remove the liner because it will get much too hot. I wore them in my house before going for my ride and was sweating profusely. I will update the review once I've had a chance to ride in the summer heat.
On size, I am 5' 11" and currently about 175 pounds. I purchased 38 long because I figured if I gained weight I would not want the pants to be too tight and I don't like riding with tight pants. They are slightly loose in the waste but with a belt they are fine. I imagine the knee armor problem wouldn't be quite so bad if they were a size smaller but they would still be useless. I got long because I don't want them riding up while on my bike and that was a good choice. They fit well while riding. I ride a sport bike not a cruiser so my knees are bent.
Summary: These are well made and a decent price for what you get. If they had adjustable knee straps they would be perfect. I will have to buy some knee supports similar to an Ace bandage in order to keep the knee armor in place.
